Designer Dupe // D.I.Y Woven Basket Bag

Designer Dupe // D.I.Y Woven Basket Bag

This basket bag trend is absolutely one of my favorites. It's like carrying a little picnic basket on your arm. I saw this JADETribe bag on Instagram, checked it out and the price seemed way too high for me. It also seemed pretty easy to try to make. So I sought out a basket bag on Etsy that fit the shape I was looking for, got some string and created this little designer dupe [...]

Designer Dupe // D.I.Y WINK Espadrilles

Designer Dupe // D.I.Y WINK Espadrilles

I have been eyeing the Jason Polan Wink Embroidered Smoking Slippers from Soludos for quite awhile now. But I just couldn't justify spending the money on them because they aren't a pair of shoes that I would wear constantly. They would be more of a quirky piece I would pair only with certain outfits. So I decided to make them instead! These were inspired by the Soludos that retail for $75. My D.I.Y version cost me about $25. They are so fun and simple to make [...]

D.I.Y Headboard

I saw something similar at Anthrpologie awhile back and thought hmm I can make that! So I started researching how to make paper flowers. I realized the amount I needed to make what I was envisioning were going to take forever and I had just moved into my new apartment at the time and I desperately wanted something on my walls. So I almost abandoned the idea, but I'm so glad I didn't because this has become such a staple piece for me [...]

D.I.Y Pom Pom Trim Pillow Case

D.I.Y Pom Pom Trim Pillow Case

Awhile back I was apart of a workshop where we tried our hands at hand dyeing shibori fabric. My 6th grade camp self was extremely excited to find a reason to tie dye something as an adult! I dyed these cotton tea towels that came out absolutely beautiful and I wanted to turn them into something. I needed new pillows desperately and i couldn't seem to find any that I liked. So of course, time to make something. I am totally on the pom pom train with everyone else so I thought combining my shibori fabric and a pom pom trim would make an (inexpensive!) pillowcase I would be happy to lay my head on [...]

Momma & Baby Photoshoot

Momma & Baby Photoshoot

Now to share my first photoshoot that captured my heart. This wonderful woman I work with was looking to have a Momma and Baby photoshoot with her gorgeous new baby River Lee. Courtney and her husband John are the most loving laid back parents ever. We chose a little wooded spot in the Rocky River reservation and the Rocky River beach for our shoot. Courtney wanted a natural, light and airy vibe to her photos with beautiful light. Their mother daughter relationship was so special and fun to capture. John even got in a few too! It also doesn't help that River is the most photogenic little girl ever [...]
